New Delhi: India’s cabinet approved on 25 July a bilateral agreement paving the way for civilian nuclear cooperation with the United States, days after the two nations concluded controversial talks to sew up the pact.
“They approved the agreement,” Indian Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee told reporters, after a joint meeting of the cabinet committees on security and political affairs. “All concerns of India have been reflected and have been adequately addressed.”
The deal, first agreed in principle two years ago, aims to give India access to to US nuclear fuel and equipment for the first time in 30 years to help meet its soaring energy needs.
